MOSCOW, May 16. /TASS/. A total of 1.5 tons of humanitarian aid have been delivered to a children’s home in Damascus, the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria said in its regular daily bulletin posted on the Russian defense ministry’s website on Sunday.
According to the document, humanitarian convoys are being formed for people living in Syria’s provinces of Homs and Latakia.
Groups constituting the international terrorist organization Jabhat al-Nusra are continuing combat operations with the aim of disrupting truce in Syria, as follows from a news bulletin. "Groups controlled by Jabhat al-Nusra resumed attacks near the settlement of Qaramanli in the province of Latakia," the bulletin says.
Syrian government troops repelled numerous attempts by Islamic State groups to seize hills in the vicinity of the cities of Palmyra and Tifour.
A ceasefire regime brokered by Russia and the United States on February 22 officially came into effect in Syria at midnight Damascus time on February 27. This does not cover terrorist groups such as Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra, both outlawed in Russia, and other groups recognized as terrorist by the United Nations Security Council.
The Russian reconciliation center aims to assist armed groups in Syria in concluding ceasefire agreements, maintain the truce regime, control its observance and organize the delivery of humanitarian cargoes to civilians.
